ambassador chris stevens was in fact worried about security threats in the weeks before he and three others were killed on 9/11 of this year. we're live in banghazi, libya. greg, you delivered such a moving story last night in our special report about banghazi. tell us what's happening on the ground now there, please. >> yeah, thanks. it's been about 5 1/2 weeks on the attack in the u.s. mission which left ambassador stevens and three other americans dead. it's still a horrible place to see, and there's still more answers to be found out. we spent a good deal of time there in the past couple of days. the main residence is a burned-out shell. you can till smell the smoke from the diesel fuel fire set by the mob. you can still see the signs of desperation, blood spattered in a bathroom, handprints on a wall, the place ransacked. as to the answers to the remaining questions, a few possibilities. one eyewitness tells us that a mob marched to the compound the night of the attack, chanting bloodthirsty slogans before they attacked. that could be an explanation why we're hearing from other people
stevens and three other americans were killed in the attack in benghazi last month. today elizabeth palmer made it inside the room where the ambassador died. >> reporter: the u.s. compound in benghazi now sits empty and abandoned. if the men who attacked these buildings on september 11 used heavy weapons, there are few signs of it. but over every window there's evidence of the billowing smoke that killed two americans, including ambassador chris stevens. inside post-it notes cling to the blackened wall, left behind by f.b.i. investigators who finally made it to this crime scene for a single day last week. cell phone video from the night of the attack shows the fire burning as looters swarmed over the compound. now a blanket of soot covers the ruins. but investigators will have been looking closely for evidence to show who set the blaze. this heavy steel security gate seals the sleeping quarters behind me off from the rest of the consulate building. it's double-locked from the inside, probably by the people who took refuge in here that night. among them, ambassador chris stevens. the space

stevens sent repeated cable to washington about security fears, even on september 1-11, the day he and three others were killed. why did the white house wait so long? what impact will the new documents have in the final debate? >> they're going to impact the final result. certainly it will be part of the final debate. look, now -- the president wants to play semantics on this, whether you put a word here or word there. fundamentally the mistake this administration made was trying to pretend and tell the world that terrorism was quelled in north africa and across the dangerous spots of the world. it's rampant and reared its ugly head and the administration is trying to hide that. when poor embassador stevens sent cables saying it's real, it's here, they shoved him under the table. shame on the president and shame on the state department. >> can we expect mitt romney to be aggressive about the benghazi it attack and ask about the video? >> i don't know what he's going to ask him but i will say he was kind of shocked when the president lied about having referred to the attack at a rea

administration to admit that this was a terrorist attack. >> well, now ambassador stevens, as you have heard, the father of ambassador stevens is saying, quote, it would really be abhorrent to make this into a campaign issue. it has to be objectively examined. it does not belong in the campaign arena. is the romney campaign wrong to politicize this while an investigation is ongoing? >> well, i think that when it comes to ambassador stevens' death all of us honor him for his service and his contribution to both our country and to what he did to help further the peace in libya. but what i think is an issue is this question of leadership and then how the events unfolded, what the white house did know, when it did know -- and when it knew it. so i think there's a separation. it's not necessarily about ambassador stevens but, in fact, about foreign policy and leadership and how this administration is handling the crisis that has stemmed from this internally. remember, richard, these were the same folks that came out and condemned anybody who suggested it was anything other than a video and now we

straight from ambassador chris stevens before he and three other americans were killed in the deadly consulate attack. republican leaders of the house oversight committee have released a batch of cables and e-mails from the ambassador and other diplomatic security workers. they say the documents are evidence that the obama administration ignored a rapidly deteriorating security situation in libya. ambassador stevens wrote this cable in august. the absence of significant deterrence has contributed to a security vacuum that is being exploited by independent actors. what we have seen are not random crimes of opportunity but rather targeted and discriminate attacks. but obama's administration officials are saying that the documents don't tell the whole story. they also say the release of the unedited e-mails could endanger the lives of the libyans working with the u.s. >>> there is a tense situation going on right now off the coast of israel. overnight israeli soldiers stormed a ship headed for its coast. passengers say they were trying to break the sea blockade of gaza that's been in ef

chris stevens. the most important take away, there were no protests in front of the consulate before the attacks ever. directly contradicting the story given by susan rice three weeks ago. here's the timeline as we know it from the state department. at 8:30 p.m. local, the streets are calm as ambassador stevens says good night to a viz siing turkish diplomat. answer agent sees a large number of men flowing into the compound and immediately puts out on alarm. a security act hustles the ambassador and others to a bunker inside the residence. the attackers then spray diesel newly igniting the building, trapping the men inside, unable to see or breathe through the heavy smoke. they now know that one security agent escapes through a window. later the american security detail finds the body of shaun smith who died of smoke inhalation, but is unable to locate ambassador stevens and in fact does not find him until his body turns up hours later in a hospital after the staff there dials numbers on ambassador stevens' cell phone to identify him. survivors escape in an armored vehicle through he
for ambassador stevens. it was beautiful in a bipartisan way to see people praise the ambassador and talk to the family about the calls they are getting from young people around the country who are inspired to go into public service despite what happened to the ambassador. so i think what we have to do is await mr. pickering's report and then we will really see what the facts are and we can determine what we should have known sooner and what we can do in the future to better protect the american people at home and abroad. >> geraldo: judge jeanine had the family of one of the seals that was slain and the family member, the dad, god, we recognize and honor his loss. he called the president insincere and called hillary clinton a liar and this is ten days before the election. i mean it has to have an impact, does at any time? >> it is very interesting timing, geraldo. i think the administration should have been more forthcoming. i think the president should have been more forthcoming about this. i think it is becoming a real sort of a disaster for the administration. but because of the timin

the september 11th assault that took the lives of ambassador chris stevens and the others. for a month, we have been hearing a protest against an anti-muslim film turned violent, leading to the deadly assault on the u.s. consulate. but now, state department officials say the video was not the trigger for what they called an unprecedented attack. instead, they say nothing was out of the ordinary that night. and that several groups of men launched the attack without warning, using machine guns, mortars and rocket-propelled grenades. it still has not answered in the middle of the chaos ambassador stevens got out of the compound and to the hospital. among those that testify is a top security official. eric nordstrom wrote an e-mail earlier this month, detailing 230 security incidents in libya between june of last year and july of this year. incidents he says demonstrate a danger to americans and the need for more security there. it will be a big day here today. rob and sunny? >> tough questions ahead. tahman bradley, in washington. thanks, tahman. >>> we now turn to politics this morning, where mit

. this is the aftermath of that attack. on september 14, the bodies of chris stevens and two others were returned home. their coffins were met at andrews air force base and that is where we pick up the story of tyrone woods father. he was there as well. he recounted to the president and secretary of state. here is part of his interview. >> when he came over to our little area, you know, i could tell that he just mumbled that he was sorry. his face was looking at me. his eyes were looking over my shoulder like you could not look me in the eye. it was not a sincere i am really sorry that your son died. he was totally insincere with the i'm sorry. it was like shaking hands with a dead fish. you know, it just didn't feel right. now it is coming out but apparently the white house situation room was watching our people die as this was happening. when i heard that this morning, this is something i was really upset with. i hope that the country does not forget this. hillary came over and she did the same thing. she separately came over and i gave her a hug and shook her hand. she did not appear to be one bit
-ahead to go back over to the embassy that perhaps they could have gotten ambassador stevens out alive. i'm not happy to say that, but i'm very dissatisfied with what happened in washington, the top leadership of this country. our military and our agents and our people out there deserve better. megyn: captain nash, you have to look at this in the greater context. these guys in libya, they knew they didn't have adequate security and they were requesting more from washington. they were requesting just to keep what they had and they were told no. the security was being reduced steadily. the british ambassador had an attempt made on his life. the brits shut down that their consulate. the red cross pulled out of libya. our ambassador in his diary was documenting his fears, he believed he was upon an al qaeda hit list. while the navy seals are begging for permission to save him, the permission was denied. how does that happen? >> that scenario i just laid out, megyn, just screams malfeasance. we spend a tremendous amount of money on our intelligence community and military. we have all the tools
a mile away asked for permission to help ambassador chris stevens there and they were told to stand down twice. they ignored those orders and they went anyway by the time they got there the compound was under fire. it was on fire, as well. they evacuated those who remained. they went back to the annex. they then requested military back-up. they were denied. hours later when it was all over former navy seals woods and glen doherty and sean smith and chris stevens all were dead. the president was asked about all of this. molly henneberg is live in washington with that part of the story. >> molly: he was asked twice about it. three pleas for help being denied as the embassy was under attack. he didn't answer directly but did say his administration is trying to find out what happened that day and also track down the people who carried out the attack. >> nobody wants to find out more what happened than i do. we wanted to to make sure we get it right. particularly i have made commitment to the families as well as the american people. we're going to bring those folks to justice. we'll gather fa

the attack and we now know u.s. embassador chris stevens sent repeated memos to washington, even on the day he was killed, asking for more security. senator graham, is it conceivable that president obama didn't know how dangerous benghazi was for americans? >> no. no administration's going to send the president of the united states into the public arena not telling him about an attack in april and june. what if the president were asked by a reporter in june, tell me about the consulate in attack in benghazi, he said i don't know. i find that inconceivable. this is going to be a case study, studied for years of a breakdown of national security at every level. failed presidential leadership. the benghazi-lib libya license consulate was a death trap. we asked additional security and was denied because we wanted to normalize relationships with a nonexistent government. we should have closed that consulate long before september 11 or heavily reinforced it and i put that on the president of the united states. this was a national security break down before, during and after the attack. >> senator
